Tanks are extremely overpowered or the weapons are underpowered. I know a tank is supposed to be strong and all, but no tank should be able to survive 3+ sticky bombs and multiple RPGs. 

 

I suggest ways to limit the tank:

 

Rounds cost money say 10 rounds for 1000$

 

Tanks have slower turning and reload time

 

Tanks have a wait period of 5 minutes before another one can be called in

 

Police get equipped with better weapons at 4&5 stars that can take down the tank quicker

 

I have used the tank and I liked it for getting my 40minute 5 star in hicktown, but too many people use them to actively hunt players down and spawn kill them which leads to my next objection. 

 

When I get killed I want to be more than a mile away from whoever killed me so I can have enough time to run away or confront them. I'm tired of spawning right in front of someone and having them shotgun me in the face, or having that tank kill me for the 7th time because I can't run fast enough.

While I agree that the spawn raping with tanks is horrible, I feel like they are balanced just fine. What we need is a Javelin missle launcher that can take down tanks in 1-2 shots (as well as a Stinger missle launcher for choppers). The weapon should be pretty expensive though and it should have very limited ammo. Maybe 2-4 missles that cost around $25,000 each.

I just wish it's unable to be accessible by other players. It seems like once someone steals your tank, you can't get it back. I jumped on top and pressed triangle and my character didn't even try to jack it. It's retarded.

I read somewhere else that that is a glitch and is unintended.. Fix should come eventually..

ahh finally! It's the most annoying thing trying to get your tank bank, especially when you don't have RPGs to destroy it when someone else is in it.

^ this
and always hold more than 1k of money so u can go passive mode when killed by tank
yes the rpg and sticky bombs seems to be too weak against tank and I agree it needs to be nerfed
I've been practicing killing tank driver in bad sports lobby and steal it to get revenge
its not that hard when u know what u need to do

Could just stick in a Javelin style single shot tank killer, with a nice hefty price tag per shot.

Sadly I feel the same way, after being camped and griefed by so many assholes I have resorted to fighting fire with fire... Also, I have a lot of fun inviting people to my garage, only to swing the tank turret around and slam them into my garage wall, killing them ;)

Police get equipped with better weapons at 4&5 stars that can take down the tank quicker

 

Aren't the police swarms enough? They alone destroy your tank by intentionally exploding their  cars below the tank...

Lately, I've been running into Rhino users who are also doing the invincibility glitch. It's extremely annoying. Aside from glitchers/cheaters, I think they're relatively balanced.

Then you, sir, have no imagination. There are quite a few things you can do to have fun. Heck, trying to learn how to fly the Buzzard effectively could take weeks or months.

 

Personally, when I see a tank, I get excited. I just keep slamming personal vehicles into them until they leave the session before they get the bad sport label. Today was the best so far, because the idiot was griefing people near the insurance company. So I'd smash into him, call the insurance, and it would appear so close to me, that I could just run right up to it. I was on my third trip toward the tank when the guy finally left the session.

If the person in the tank was smart enough, they'd know to just turn their xbox off when being put in bad sport. Cancels it and you're ready for another car smashing rampage ;)

If you're getting killed repeatedly by a tank, you need a better strategy...tanks are slow as hell and hard to maneuver, especially in tight spots.  They are easily avoided.

The biggest problem is that the few things that are effective (heavy sniper, rpg etc) are unavailable until you're a very high level. It's like R* WANTED everyone below level like 80 to be completely helpless to as*hole griefers.

U get the tank at 70... The best defense against a tank is a tank. I don't think three stickies should take out a tank. I do think it needs a longer cool down time between shots.
